What? I don't understand.
Listen to me. Don't let your imagination run wild. It's a transitional period.
So, you're firing me for no real reason, then?

I didn't expect to walk out of this movie praising it in any way, however the way it was filmed was intriguing to me and the fact that it was controversial enough to get a rise out of the Disney Corporation. However, after seeing this film my mind was racked with different themes and metaphors portrayed in this film. It's actually really good. Even with its occasional flaws, Escape from Tomorrow is one of the better amateur films I have seen in recent years. It deserves praise. It's well thought out and shows the dark side of a corporation like Disney as well as the dark side of an average man's dreams. I say its defiantly worth a watch.
